Carolina Live reported that South Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have recently refused funding for Marion Nursing Center in October. The home lost its funding from CMS because they failed to comply with federal regulations. Medicare/Medicaid patients had to be removed from the home and placed into other facilities in the area, unless families paid for the home’s care themselves. CMS doesn’t revoke Medicare funding to homes very often, which indicates that the home failed to comply with regulations in a number of areas. Employees and members of the community wrote in the comments below the article, covering a variety of views.
